I want to talk a bit a about Quantum Leap, I re-watched this show on Netflix recently, after not seeing it in pretty much 18 years. I knew Quantum Leap was fun, sometimes goofy, sometimes dramatic. But watching this show now I realized just how awesome it really was.

Maybe the most humanistic show in all of television history. When I think of the premise of the Quantum Leap itself; Sam will trade bodies with anybody from his own lifetime. This is point A: People are people, A person may seem far different but we are all a human entity. POINT B: Sam is leaping to put right what once went wrong. He doesn't think he asked for this and that God or fate is doing so, However; knowing he is in the right place at the right time, he will do what's right. He has to adapt to who he is, to who the people around him are and the attitudes of the time and place. Being in this position of needing to come to an understanding is how people help each other, Not simply saying what they know; but learning as well.

It truely was a great show. I hope the movie, no matter the actors has the same core.

PS: The other thing I really liked is the lack of exposition in plot. For a sci-fi show this is particularly impressive.
